When visiting the website
When you visit our website www.madisonint.com, information is automatically sent to our website server by the browser you are using on your device. This information is temporarily retained in a log file. The information listed below is automatically collected and retained until it is automatically deleted, generally after one week:
• IP address of the requesting computer,
• Date and time of access,
• Name and URL of the file opened,
• Website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL),
• Browser used and optionally your computer’s operating system as well as the name of your access provider.
We process the data listed above for the following purposes:
• to guarantee the establishment of a smooth connection to the website,
• to guarantee easy use of our website,
• to evaluate system security and stability,
• to investigate any suspicious or unauthorized access attempts (DoS/DDoS attacks, among others) and
• for other administrative purposes.
The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6, para. 1, sent. 1, letter f of the GDPR. Our justified interest is consistent with the purposes listed above for which we collect the data. As a rule we do not use the data we collect to identify you. However, we reserve the right to do so in the event it becomes necessary to investigate unauthorized access to or misuse of our site.
When contacting us
If you have questions of any type, we offer you the opportunity to contact us by telephone and/or via e-mail. For this purpose, we have provided contact information on our website for our office in New York, USA, as well as for the offices of our subsidiaries in Germany and in the United Kingdom.
If you have questions of any type, we also offer you the opportunity to contact us via a contact form provided on the website. Submission of this form requires a valid e-mail address so that we know who sent the inquiry and so that we can respond to it.
You can also provide us with additional information so that we can more easily route and respond to your inquiry. If you indicate your name or telephone number we can contact you personally or by telephone to respond to any questions you may have.
Inquiries received via the contact form are automatically routed to our office in New York, USA, and initially handled there. If your inquiry relates to our subsidiary companies’ offices in Germany or the United Kingdom, we will forward your request to the respective company, namely Madison International Realty GmbH, Taunusanlage 11, 60329 Frankfurt am Main, Germany (see above for detailed information), or Madison International Realty UK, Ltd., 53/54 Grosvenor Street, London W1K 3HU, United Kingdom. Conversely, our subsidiary companies will also forward inquiries that are received there by e-mail or telephone to the appropriate company in our group.
Data provided for purposes of contacting us is processed in accordance with Art. 6, para. 1, sent. 1, letter a of the GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent or for (pre-) contractual inquiries on the basis of Article 6, para. 1, letter b, GDPR. We have a justified interest in the forwarding of your inquiry to the respective company within our group as a result of the organization of our group and such a transfer also contributes to optimal handling of your inquiry (Article 6, para. 1, letter f, GDPR).
We will delete the data we collect and process in the framework of your contact with us after your inquiry has been handled or after the expiration of the legal retention periods (for example, if you send us a pre-contractual message via the contact form and we then establish a contractual relationship or if your message relates to existing contractual relationships).

• the transfer is permitted by law and in accordance with Art. 6, para. 1, sent. 1, letter b GDPR for the handling of contractual relationships with you.

During your website visit, we use common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption together with the highest encryption level that is currently supported by your browser. This is generally 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will instead use 128-bit v3 technology. You can determine whether an individual page of our Internet site is transmitted in encrypted form by looking for the locked display of the lock or key symbol in the bottom status line of your browser.
We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from accidental or malicious tampering, partial or total loss, destruction and unauthorized third-party access. Our security measures are continuously updated as the technology evolves.
